    Hello forum!
    I am about to start a blog farm with ~180 blogs, and I am just curious about your stories if you was/are into blog farming. How much did you make out of it, wich way you set it up, how do you get your visitors? As I said, I plan to set up 180 blogs, each with different keywords, 25 full posts at setup (coded my own blogger creator, auto scraper/poster/pinger). Once it's all setup I plan to link the blogs together randomly, blow out many pings and add new content each week.

    So, let's talk, even it's via PM ;)

    Cheers

    Looks like a valiant first effort. How is it working out?

    Well, received some 11 ad clicks from yesterday, but without much promotion! Only that low ass pinger I hacked together in 10mins wich is pinging each Post to multiple services without proxy, so it take it's time :). Whatever, will see what happens if I will bookmark some posts of each blog.

    And yeah, the more blogs the more chances, sure. But it's just a beginning, I alreay thinked about coding a total automated script. Not fucking around with blogger. But therefor you need some resources, and I dont want to use my "normal hosting". So if lil cash come in I will start in real business :D

    I am not sure how to monetize a blog farm. For testing I have built over 6000 blogs with links to my sites but I see no real improvement. Most of my traffic still comes from legit links anyway. The links show up but only in google's blog search feature. The regular search shows none of these back links. Does this take more time? These blogs are only about 60days old. Or are blogs a waste of time for back links to money sites?
    I should note that I have not interlinked these blogs in any way. I believe in the upward linking strategy.

    care to share some info on how you set things up? I've been looking for a way to do this that doesn't use some bad php/wordpress app that isn't worth d0wnloading off rapid (which is 99% of ebooks too)

    any perl/python scripts? perhaps just bash? I can see scripting the deploy and db setup, then use another mysql call to setup the admin acct - but then what? how do you populate the dbs with articles and/or rss2blog style stuff? I like yr automated slant, I'm all about it too (currently have monit taking care of my debian server ;))

    The blogs are all at blogger cause I didnt want to spent any money for the first try. If it was on my own hosting things had been alot easier.
    That's how I set this up:
    - coded a blogger account creator, input was a keyword driven list (captcha still to enter, didnt get around them)
    - coded a email verifier, you know, that mail that google send if you register a new account
    - coded something to change the theme on all blogs, and add the linkage to a HTML widget
    - coded a automated poster, for each keyword rss's get ripped of and all posted to blogger (and in the post content keywords get linked to clickbank)

    All was kinda hacked together, but I'am about to recode things and will give it away for low cash or trading...

    I'll be watching with great intrique as I'm getting Blog Solution 4 up on a VPS...

    What kind of content solution you "coding" to fill these up?

    Also, isn't throwing up too many blogs too quickly take an above-the-radar risk?
    :eek:

    Hope to get you right. The content comes from an RSS feed matching to the keyword of the blog. So the amount of 180 blogs is because I defined 180 keywords. The list for that are generated by a small PHP script (Blog->Keyword->RSS URL).

    Yeh, of yourse it's un-human to throw up so many blogs with content. But the difference to other blogger solutions is, that mine create for every new blog a new user.

    Honestly I don't await much income, but some bucks to cover future actions would be kewl. Anyway, I had fun coding, and if it get's sandboxed I don't give a damn and try other things ;)

    Sample blog, naw, don't want sho it here. Just imagine a usual ass nice blogger theme with adsense, posts (20+), keywords and links on it.
